In general, vitiligo on joint areas is the most common and takes the longest to cure.

How to Spot Developing Vitiligo on Joint Areas

These areas such as, hands, feet and elbows are the areas most exposed to the sun. Being exposed to the sun increases the risk of sunburn which, if not soon after, in later years could cause the skin to show signs of Vitiligo.

Vitiligo on Hands

Our hands are often exposed to strong chemicals which can harm the skin cells. It could also be because these areas have more folds and creases in the skin and therefore the pigment cannot reach all the surface skin.

Vitiligo that is found mostly on the fingers and toes is called Acrofacial. Most people develop Vitiligo prior to age 40. About half of these people develop it before age 20.

Vitiligo on Feet

The lesions on the feet, hands and other joint areas are the most difficult to treat as the skin is thickest in these areas. Saying this, patients using Vitilox products have reported a tremendous amount of success in these areas.

As the white patches are visible, embarrassment can lead to a lack of self-esteem resulting in anxiety and depression.  Anxiety can worsen Vitiligo by causing it to spread so it is extremely important to seek professional help.

Ho Vitiligo Develops

Generally, vitiligo develops after a mentally traumatic event such as death or divorce or even moving to a new house. It can also be caused by physical trauma such as childbirth. Trauma to the areas of the skin that loses its pigmentation such as from sunburn, chemicals and cuts are another cause.

Recommended Treatment for Vitiligo on Joint Areas

Our recommendation for the treatment of Vitiligo on joint areas would be the Vitilox Pigmentation Cream together with the T-Cell-V tablets.

If the patient is under 8 years of age, they will have to take Vitamin B12 and folic acid instead of the T-Cell-V.

The Vitilox Cover Cream works well on the hands and other areas of the body to cover white patches during treatment. Apply the Vitilox Cover Cream and setting powder for up to 24-hour coverage.
